Hollywood in Nana Plaza has canned their happy hour leaving just Erotica and Pretty Lady as the only two nightspot in the plaza with happy hours.
Each bar offers 80 baht drinks before 9 PM but I can't understand why so little is done to promote it. Unless you catch the small signs inside the bars advertising happy hour prices, you'd never know!
Tilac in Soi Cowboy, a lady drink will set you back just 100 baht. Shark Bar has heaps of really pretty girls but I would suggest the venue is in dire need of a new DJ...
Phuket doesn't quite have its usual charm at the moment with daily rainfall making the streets quiet. Many bars are quiet and while that might put some off visiting, the flip side is that it's an excellent time to go girl shopping, short or long time, before the remaining girls get discouraged and go back home too.
In Kata, Karon, Chalong and Rawai, one has their pick of the girls and there are still some cuties if you want to take one home to take care you through the rainy season. As far as a shorter period goes, my secret spies on the paradise island confirm that you can have company all night long for a thousand baht, a far cry from Bangkok or Patong prices. Barfines have climbed up in some bars from 200 to 300 baht but overall it's still a good deal.
This weather we're currently experiencing in Bangkok really is a drag. I don't mind the rainy season per se because it lowers the temperature and the air is a little clearer for a day or so.
But what I don't like is that it makes going out and meeting friends a real pain.
